it was thedy ploy sy of secretary clinton to salvage this. they're not out of woods to use that expression but no sense that this evening will be a lot or at least relatively calmer than it was over the past eight nights. >> coming to the cease-fire and the agreement that was made, what are the conditions that hamas was willing to bring to the table to negotiate with? >> reporter: well, hamas is willing -- hamas and the palestinian factions part of it willing to stop all rocket fire in to southern israel and in to israel in general. the other issues may not necessarily be involved hamas but the egyptians and the smuggling of weapons in to the gaza strip and more often than not go through the sinai peninsula and egypt's territorial waters and probably pressure on egypt to deliver and secure that smuggling route so that weapons don't end up in hamas' hand. that's what they brought to the table. certainly hamas would only do so with assurances that israel going to stop assassination of the leaders and easing of the blockade and we understand issues discussed perhaps in coming days or weeks. i
for that. stay safe. jonathan allen, senior washington correspondent for politico joins us now and started writing a new book on hillary clinton and jonathan, obviously, hillary at the heart of when's happened today with this cease-fire but that really hasn't been the case. the tenure as secretary of state coming to an end, hasn't been much engagement on the state department's part on the u.s. government's part in the middle east peace process. i wonder if you have a sense, is that -- is that coming from the white house or did she for these past four years share the view of the white house that sort of disengaging from the process was the right move? >> i would certainly say that the united states foreign policy goals are set by the white house. even if the secretary of state has different goals. they end up doing what the white house wants. so, as far as emphasis around the world, that's something that's coming from the obama administration. and look, the middle east is an area that obviously has been a problem i would say for decades but really for centuries, maybe my len yeah. so that t
